My System Specs

Default

I just received my two RMAd seagate 500 Gb drives back- both vrapped out after almost exactly 6 months.

Seagate makes it a PITA to RMA as well with their strict packing requirements- no newspaper, not styrofoam of any kind, must have static bag, must be suspended in a foam rubber holder. Way too much hassle for a couple of paper weights.

I think the reason they've done this is because the fleet of dead 500GB drives coming back are easily overhauled so their trying to make sure they're resaleable.....by further inconveniencing the already inconvenienced customer.
